Garden journal needed

Posted: 06/09/2015 at 11:40

I'm looking for a good garden/plant journal to replace the various scraps of paper, newspaper cuttings, saved web pages and word documents that I seem to have accumulated over the last few years. Can anyone recommend one? Ideally it would include jobs to be done, particularly pruning jobs, what I've planted and when, etc. Having looked on Amazon the best of the bunch seems to be the RHS 5 year Record Book. Has anyone used this? Or are there better ones out there?

Well they don't seem to have decimated the garden as yet... Interestingly they do seem to make a beeline for the hedgehog food each night.

Hideous beasts the lot of them. Mine look suspiciously like the Spanish variety. And I saw one on my kniphofia too! That's it, I'm getting rid!
